The OPPO Reno6 Z and Reno6 both comes with a 32MP selfie camera, as well as the same camera setup at the back where they offer a 64MP main camera, 8MP ultra-wide lens, and a 2MP macro sensor. With that said, they offer quite the package and would fit any photography situations that you might want to take. To top it off, the 64MP plus OPPO’s AI algorithm make the Reno6 Z loaded with innovative portrait features to take advantage of.
Thanks to their 64MP main camera, you can capture ultra-high resolution and as you can see from the 2nd and 3rd image, there’s a lot of details to be seen, even when zoomed in at 100%. You can also make use of OPPO’s exclusive Image Clear Engine technology as well as copy your favourite portrait styles with a single click with AI Palette.
Bokeh Flare Portrait
One of the key highlights of the OPPO Reno6 series is the Bokeh Flare Portrait mode, which is available for both front and back cameras. With just a simple click, the mode automatically transforms background lights in bokeh light spots and brighten portrait subjects. You can see clearly that with the mode, it really does make a big impact and make low-light subjects to be seen more visibly. The Reno6 has the ability to run it for videos as well but if you’re a person who loves taking photos instead, the one on the Reno6 Z is more than enough.
This feature can massively help you take stunning shots for things like city nightscapes, romantic sky dining, birthday parties, carnival, or basically anything that you can think of. The possibility is big.
Taking your portrait beautification to the next level
So not only does the series impress when it comes to photography but they also offer a beautiful experience for your videos. There’s features such as Portrait Beautification Video that allows the software to deliver subtle and natural beautification effects for your portrait videos.
As you can see from the image above, the OPPO Reno6 Z also comes with Dual-View Video functionality, allowing you to record videos from both sides of the cameras simultaneously, allowing you to tell the bigger story and be more creative. You can easily showcase your experience for example in a concert or even singing a duet with someone, literally showing perspective of both sides.
There is also the Focus Tracking feature, allowing for video auto-focusing capabilities. This means that the subjects in your video will always stay in focus and don’t appear blurry or out of focus. It’s certainly helpful when you’re trying to capture a moving subject such as in sports as shown in the video.
When it comes to the design, both the Reno6 and Reno6 Z comes in OPPO’s Reno Glow Design. Not only that they look great, but they also feel great as well, thanks to their matte finish at the back.
They come with a lightweight and thin design, weighing in around 173g and fits easily on your palm as well as slide easily into your pocket.
Coming with two variant: Aurora and Stellar Black, the former is inspired by the wildest depths of the company’s imagination, just like the dazzling Northern lights. As for Stellar Black, it adds a new dimension to the classic black plus with a dynamic, shimmering, transparent, and constantly changing visual effect with OPPO Reno Glow, just like the cherry on top.
We’ve talked mostly on the software so far, well here’s the hardware side of things. With the Reno6 Z, it packs a Dimensity 800U 5G chipset that delivers optimal performance. To improve and receive better 5G connection, a 360-degree antenna has been introduced to the phone.
It packs 8GB RAM that’s mated with 128GB of internal storage, similar to the Reno6, which is more than enough to offer you a buttery smooth experience and space to keep all your contents. If that seems not enough for you, there’s the RAM Expansion function to benefit from. You can choose to convert parts of your storage to virtual RAM. You have the freedom to adjust the volume of expansion in three adjustment of an additional 2GB/3GB/5GB expanded memory.
Let’s say that you want to save and maximize your battery even further, you can simply use the Super Power Saving Mode plus the Super Nighttime Standby feature should the need arise.
Exclusively for the Reno6 Z, there’s Air Gestures that allow you to scroll on your phone without even touching it. We all know sometimes our hands are just too busy doing something so this feature can come in handy. It can recognize specific gestures that allow you to scroll through your social media apps, video apps, and more. Not to forget, you can also swipe up to answer your calls.
The OPPO Reno6 series comes with Hyperboost 4.0 technology that gives you a better experience when it comes to gaming. Issues such as long loading times, lag, battery drain, overheating, and unstable can be avoided with it as it can reduce the phone’s power consumption by 10% and lower the temperature increase by 1 degree, all without dropping the performance.
Aside from that, it can better balance power consumption by automatically optimizing CPU and GPU frequency during gameplay for a better experience.
